CAUSED BY "CODDLING." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 February 1914
CAUSED BY "CODDLING." While there are many people who suffer as a result of not studying their diet, there are others whose maladies are caused by pampering and "cod dling" their digestive organs. "Most of the people who declare that they cannot eat this &lt;., that ar ticle of food would be much healthier if they simply took the ordinary diet of every-day life and did not trouble themselves whether their food agreed with them dr not." Such was the dictum of a doctor who has studied the question. The principle does not apply only to food. Throat complaints are often caused by "coddling" the throat, and chills by over-clothing the body and shunning the cold air. Hundreds of invalids would be well and active If they were forced to go out and take their share of the'world's work.
SHIPWRECKED ON A CANNIBAL ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 February 1914
SHIPWRECKED ON A CANNIBAL ISLAND. A cake of soap is said to have saved the lives of five men and a boy off the coast of New Guinea. The story, as told in the smoking-room of a steamer going to Brisbane, by an old man, the owner of several vessels engaged in pearl-fishing, is reported in Mr. Nip bet's "Colonihl Tramp." "It all happened in a moment," said the old man. "The ship struck a part of the reef and went down like a thun derbolt, and we had only time to jump overboard and swim ashore. "We were at the mouth of Cloudy Bay, which meant slow roasting alive as soon as the natives got a peep at us. We were wet, hungry and miser able, with nothing to stay the pangs of hunger. "As daylight dawned I saw a case slowly drifting to shore. In a moment we were all wading and- swimming to secure the treasure. We had it on; shore in no time, and prising it open with our fingers found it filled with soap. We bemoaned our hard luck in emphatic language. " Close round the case, boys, they're com...
WORK-A-DAY MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 February 1914
WORK-A-DAY MAXIMS. Here is the list of "Don'ts": Don't marry a woman simply be cause she is pretty. Don't marry a woman who is not in sympathy with your ideas. Don't drink. The man who never drinks is not asked. Don't go around to see the sights merely to gather strength to resist evil. Don't drink. Don't imagine that you will have the strength of will to know when to turn back. Don't go round wearing a sour face. Don't be a hypocrite. Hypocrisy Is the meanest of characteristics. Don't live above your income. The man who lives within his means will have little to be afraid of. Don't question the motives of those who, having sinned, are trying'to show by their actions that they have turned over a new leaf. Don't think that you can accumulate a surplus of good deeds to offset sin. Don't be ashamed to do any work that falls to your hands. Don't be afraid to make a lowly be ginning. Don't be discontented with life be cause you are not rich. Don't worship the "almighty dol lar." I)on't e...
MAX O'RELL ON KEEPING YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 February 1914
MAX O'RELL ON KEEPING YOUNG, It is restlessness, ambition, discon' -ent and disquietude, that make us grow old prematurely by carving wrinkles on our faces. Wrinkles do not appear oni faces that have con stantly smiled. Smiling is the best possible massage. Contentment is the Fountain of Youth. We complain when we ought to be thankful, we weep when we ought to rejoice, we fidget and fret. Instead of smiling, which keeps the cheeks stretched and smooth, we frown which keeps them contracted and en. graves wrinkles on them. Instead of looking at the rosy side of thlings, which makes the eyes clear and bright, we run after the impossibli or the un. likely to happen, which makes us look gloomy. In short, I may say that old age is of our own make, for youth is placed at one's disposal for ever and ever. The organs of man are like the works of a clock. If they are not used, they rust. So long as the human ma chine is kept well oiled and regularly wound up, it goes. It is activity, it is wo...
